ZFS, which means Z File System, is a cutting-edge file system that offers better performance for Internet sites and online programs. One of its serious advantages is the real-time checksum comparison - every file has a checksum, or a digital fingerprint, and ZFS compares the checksums of all files between the several hard disks working together within a RAID. If any file is corrupted for some reason on one of the hard drives, it is restored from another drive with the correct checksum. As a result, the integrity of any file saved on a server is ensured at all times. ZFS also functions faster than other file systems, that permits backups to be created considerably faster and without slowing down the general performance of the entire machine. Also, ZFS does not have a set limit for the total number of files that could be stored on a server while all other file systems have some restriction which could cause issues at some point, specifically for script applications that have a huge number of files.
